Keridwyn "Keri" JonesAge:
Keri is a very laid back sort of girl. In general, she doesn't bother herself with matters of morality too much though she is the sort that is naturally kind and, if able, willing to help those in need. Her loyalty lies with the crew of her ship, who are a sort of replacement family for her and helping a stranger will never come before keeping her crew safe. She's intelligent and learns new skills quickly but, having grown up on an outer planet, not as educated as she could have been had she grown up in the Core. She has a thirst for adventure and freedom that keeps her flying fast and, sometimes, laughing when a job turns dangerous and pushes her skills to their limits.Background:
Growing up on the outer planets she didn't have the access to education and technology that those in the inner core did but that didn't stop her from learning everything she could. Especially when it came to flying and navigation. Having a head for science and numbers she learned all that she could about the theory behind different ships, how they worked, how/why they flew, what common problems with them were, and how to push them to their limits.
She built a reputation as a pilot, first on small jobs on her own planet and then on longer jobs between worlds. Her reputation had her as bold, willing, and able, to push a ship to it's limits, and for being slightly crazy in finding those limits. She took chances other pilots wouldn't but she always brought her ship back into port. It was the crazy part that often had her catching jobs with smugglers and other, somewhat, nefarious types, the part where she always brought the ships into whatever port they were calling home, was what kept those same types coming back for more until she found a ship to settle, and a crew, to settle on.
With the rest of the 'Verse choosing sides all Keri wanted to do was fly. She didn't care much for the Alliance, but she didn't see how the outer rim would be improved by booting them out of their lives either. Of course she also didn't see what the Alliance gained by keeping a bunch of poor, dustbowl planets barely scraping by either. Truth was, she didn't much care. She had what she wanted and so long as neither side interfered with that, she'd let them battle it out on their own.
